The Russian Embassy in the United States said that the Sea Breeze – 2021 military exercise, which will be held from June 28 to July 10 in Ukraine and in the Black Sea, “encourages militaristic sentiments in Kiev”. This is stated in a statement published by the diplomatic mission on Twitter, reports TASS.
“The scale and clearly aggressive nature of the Sea Breeze exercises in no way correspond to the real tasks of security in the Black Sea region. These maneuvers “increase the risk of unintentional incidents” and “encourage militaristic sentiments in Kiev”, – the statement said.
The Russian embassy called on the United States and its allies to abandon the practice of military operations in the Black Sea, since all emerging problems in this region can be solved by the Black Sea states without “imposing” outside assistance.
Earlier it became known that 32 countries, including the United States, will take part in the Sea Breeze military exercises – 2021. 5 thousand servicemen will participate in the maneuvers, it is planned to use 32 ships and 40 aircraft.
